Standards: Utah Biology Standard 4. Evolutionary Change Time Requirements: Activity Time: 1 class period ~50 minutes Materials: • 15 jelly beans in a cup • Jelly bean key Background Information, Activity Setup: Scientists use classification keys to find names for living things. In this activity you will use a key to find names for jelly beans. A key starts with numbered choices. As you decide on the characteristics of the bean, you move through the key. Remember to always start with number one and then go where it directs you. The great thing about this activity is—you get to eat the jelly beans! Step-by-Step Procedure: 1. Look on the back of this paper for the jelly bean key. 2. Pick a bean to start with and list the numbers you follow to identify the bean. Always start with #1 on the key. Fill in the num- bers in the data as you go. 3. When you get to a description for the flavor of the bean—eat it! Write down if you think it tastes like the description. 4. Make up a scientific name for the bean. The name must have two words that sound Latin or Greek. The first word in a scientific name is capitalized; the second is not. Example: Lemonus tastius.
